Academy Awards caves to shakedown artists, white males take another hit in Obama’s America

White males take another hit in President Barack Obama’s America.

In response to the outcry over no black actors being nominated for an Oscar this year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences moved quickly to appease the aggrieved by agreeing to “become less male and less white,” as The New York Times opted to describe the actions taken.

Meeting Thursday, the Academy’s board of directors approved several initiatives designed to double the number of women and diverse members of the Academy by 2020.

Three new seats will also be added to its board of governors to diversify its leadership — white males need not apply.

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs sounded eerily similar to Obama in a statement announcing the changes: “The Academy is going to lead and not wait for the industry to catch up.”

Based on the reaction on social media, receiving an Oscar is evolving into little more than being given a participation trophy. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
